Cruising Guide

Windstar Cruises

Maritime Travel Perk: Up to $300 USD per person to spend onboard!

Once known solely for its masted ships, Windstar has doubled its fleet with the addition of three 212-passenger ex-Seabourn motor yachts. All ships feature itineraries that mix marquee and exotic ports, a fabulous variety of dining venues, deluxe spa facilities and luxurious accommodations. Each ship also features a sports marina, where passengers can engage in water sports like kayaking, snorkeling and water-skiing while in port. The passenger-to-crew ratios are a high 1.5 to 1 and a superb level of personal service is the result.

“Assuming that it would be too expensive, Windstar hadn’t been on my radar, either for myself or for clients – but they certainly are now! The personal service, the attention to detail, not having to deal with tenders at most ports: it’s like being aboard your own personal yacht and having access to small, charming ports. No more big ships for me! Windstar’s frequent sales and promos make it accessible to anyone wanting this experience.”
